KLASMANN is PEATMOSS
growing media is made of peatmoss. Peatmoss comes from Sphagnum moss (Sphagnum
sp.) that has been decomposed for several thousand years. Some essential
characteristics of peatmoss are its light weight and high percentage of pore
space, which enhance its capability to stay humid, stay in slightly low pH, and
detach from plant diseases and pests. With these characteristics, peatmoss is a
perfect choice as growing media as well as nursing materials.
be divided into three types according to its layer and texture:
Top layer of
peatmoss contains brownish in color. It is light with large pore space from
lesser compression and shorter decomposition time. This type of peat is called “white
layer of peatmoss contains dark brown color. It is heavier than white peat with
smaller pore space. This layer of peat material has gone through more
decomposition process which allows it to hold more water. This type or peat is
called “moderately decomposed white peat” or “brown peat.”
layer of peatmoss contains black in color. With the most compression and
decomposition, it has smallest pore space which can hold the most amount of
water as compared to the higher layers. This type of peat is called “black peat.”
